5 Ways to Revamp Your Kitchen on a Budget

Are you sick of your bland, boring kitchen? Here are a few simply ways to take your kitchen from outdated to updated, without breaking the bank.

Freshen Up Your Cabinetry

Cabinetry often dominates the visual landscape of your kitchen. So, freshening up your cabinets can quickly make a big difference. If your existing cabinets have good bones, but are a little hard on the eye, a lick of paint could be the way to go. If your cabinets look a bit bland, or are damaged, try replacing just the facings. Either way, you don’t have to fork out big bucks and replace all your cabinetry to make a big impact.

Change Out Your Hardware

Outdated cabinet handles and tapware can let you down both in style and in functionality. Right now, brass, matte black, and stainless steel hardware is making an appearance in modern kitchen renos. Pick a finish that will suit your kitchen long-term, especially if you’re planning future revamps.

Update Your Splashback

It can be easy (and cheap!) to add a little pizzaz to your splashback. If you have old, outdated tiles, try painting over them. Or depending on the material of your existing splashback (plaster, glass, tile), try adding some peel-and-stick tiles over top as a budget-friendly solution. These days, peel-and-stick tiles are available in herringbone, subway, Moroccan designs, and more. So, you can give your splashback a modern facelift without busting the budget.

Add Some Modern Accessories

Kitchen countertops can quickly collect clutter (try saying that five times fast). To achieve a minimal, sleek feel, take a trip to your local department store and pick up some modern, functional, storage accessories. For example, a coloured tray for your coffee, tea, and sugar jars will make the area feel purposeful rather than chaotic. And everyday bits-and-pieces can be stored in rattan baskets or designer tins, to add to the vibe of your kitchen, rather than detracting from it.

Add Some New Lighting

It’s time to do away with that old fluorescent tube light fixture and bring in the new. Suspended bar lights, sleek chandeliers, and bold pendant lights are trending for above-bench lighting. Whereas recessed downlights are a low-key solution for the rest of the kitchen. Adding a new fixture in an existing position should be easy work for a qualified electrician. So, update your fixtures and shed light on your newly revamped kitchen for less.
